Handmade beaded choker necklaces


I love chokers but I can never find anything I like that would fit nicely on my skinny bony neck. That's when I started buying colourful beads in small packages and having a go at making my own beaded jewellery. Here are 2 of my early attempts that cost me less than £2 in total, but I have worn each of them to many parties and concerts, and am still not sick of them yet.


I wear them with dresses to more formal functions but I can also match them with jeans or casual wear on a day out. I've also made some bracelets and belts out of my beads projects.

    1. That's the problem with this thing, I can't see users' emails either so it's hard to reply personally. What you can do is put your email in the comment, and I will just delete the comment after copying the email address. All comments need my approval before being publish, to maintain a clean blog and to protect everyone's privacy. But glad that the direction works for you, your granddaughter is very lucky girl. Happy holiday!
